FEEDING INSTRUCTIONS

As with any new feed, introduce gradually over a week.
Lucie Fibre Cubes are ideally fed soaked.
Alternatively, mix with soaked PuraBeet or a Simple System chop
and dampen well.
For foals, greedy, elderly or dentally challenged horses,
Lucie Fibre Cubes should be soaked.
Use 2-2.5 times their volume of water.

Feed according to requirement & condition.
Start with 100g per 100kg of bodyweight per day, increase as required up to a maximum of 5kg per day. For example, for a 500kg horse start with 500g per day (dry weight, before soaking) and increase as required.

VITAMINS & MINERALS

We do not add vitamins as the forages themselves have them naturally occurring, often in their precursor form, so the packaging of each forage product details average vitamin & mineral figures produced by the British Association of Green Crop Driers to give an indication of the levels found within Lucerne or Grass. However, Simple System undertakes mineral analysis every two years or when/if the source of the product is changed. Below are the most up to date figures specific to this product.
